BILL NUMBER:S3136A REVISED 04/21/11

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize a certain individual to take the competitive civil service
examination and be placed on the eligible list for appointment as a
full-time police officer for the village of
Oxford, county of Chenango

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This legislation authorizes the State of New York to allow Ronald
Martin, of the village of Oxford in Chenango County, exemption from
the age requirements of Civil Service Law Section 58.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Civil Service Law requires that a full-time competitive police
officer be no less than twenty years, and no more than thirty-five
years of age. This limits the ability of small municipalities such as
Oxford to locate and hire the best full-time police officers available.

The village of Oxford currently has open a full-time competitive
police officer position.

Ronald Martin (Oxford) is a police Academy graduate who is currently
serving as a part-time police officer in the Oxford village
Department and would qualify as a top-tier candidate for the
available position if the age restriction did not disqualify him. Mr.
Martin has proven himself as an exceptional police officer and is in
great physical shape.

Mr. Martin has a reputation that has earned him the full support of
the village Board along with the Chief of police in the village of
Oxford, yet the village is unable to allow him to obtain full-time
status.

It has therefore been requested by the village that this legislation
be enacted upon by the State in order to afford him the opportunity
to be exempt from the age requirements of Civil service Law Section
58, to allow him to take the Civil Service Exam and enter the pool of
qualified applicants for the open positions.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
None.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
